Greetings to you in the matchless name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
I sincerely pray that the gracious Lord makes His presence felt in your life, in a special way all through September and in the comings days. The Lord is sure to lead you further ‘beside the still waters and in the path of righteousness` (Psalm 23:2, 3). As I was meditating on His word the Lord showed me a wonderful promise verse for you from II Timothy 4:8,
“Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day...”
What a great assurance and joy it is to know that the Lord has ‘the Crown of Righteousness’ in store for us a reward! In the Bible, we see many rewards set aside for those who dedicate themselves to Christ and do what the Lord commands. One of the rewards that God gives to His people is the ‘Crown of Righteousness,’ which means ‘a crown for doing what is right.' Yes! My dear friend, a crown is in store for you as you humbly share the burden with us to fulfill the mission and vision that the Lord has given to the Jesus Calls Ministry to wipe away the tears of millions. Surely, our Father in Heaven will reward your righteousness through Christ Jesus.
You will be rewarded with the ‘crown of righteousness’ not only by doing what is right but also by placing your faith in Him. The Bible says in Genesis 15:6, ‘Abram believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.’ Abraham believed God, he obeyed His word and left his father’s land even when he didn’t know where he was going. In the same way, trust in the Lord with all your heart who is the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2) and embrace the new life He has in store for you. As you let go of the old, and by faith embrace God’s promises, know that He is leading you down the path of righteousness for His name’s sake!’ However, the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day’ Proverbs 4:18.
Yes, as you are covered with the righteousness of Christ, no evil can touch you (Job 5:19). ‘Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all’ (Psalm 34:19). You will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, bringing forth a blessing to your family and the people around you. Even now, you have an opportunity to bring hope in the lives of people in Kerala who are suffering at this time of adversity. Stretch forth your helping hand to provide the need of the homeless and rebuild their lives (Matthew 25:40). SEESHA volunteers, medical team, and staff have already gone across Kerala to provide shelter and medical help.
Let’s follow Jesus and give life. As we endeavour to care for those who have no hope, God’s righteousness will come upon you, and a crown will be given to you. In return, your life will be filled with God’s presence. Yes, in everything you will have life, and in everything, you will prosper (Deuteronomy 29:9). I am delighted to tell you that the Lord opened a way for us as a family to minister abroad last month and thousands were blessed. We need your continued prayers as we have many meetings scheduled in the month of September.
If you have any prayer requests or need guidance, write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will pray for you and respond with God’s word. Be assured that my family and I, and the prayer intercessors at Jesus Calls are always praying for you and your family. May God bless you richly! Have a wonderful month.
Your loving brother,
